Holy Emy

A film by Araceli Lemos

Synopsis

When their mother returns to the Philippines, two young sisters, Emy and Teresa, are left alone in Athens where they begin to forge separate paths in search of their own identities. Teresa, secretly pregnant with a Greek sailor’s child, is embraced by the insular Filipino Charismatic Catholic church where Emy feels like an outsider. Emy is drawn toward the home of Mrs. Christina, an elderly Greek woman who runs an alternative healing practice where the sisters’ mother used to work. As Teresa’s pregnancy advances, Emy explores the mysterious forces and abilities within her and must learn how to live a life of her own. Will she make peace with the gifts and curses of her body?
